I realized tonight that Older Boy doesn't have the right attitude about education in general.  He truly doesn't really have a "love for learning".  He considers school drudgery and something to be hated and avoided.

Realizing this makes me think about the approach we should be taking to him.  Maybe if he understood that there are so many people out there who aren't given the opportunity for an education or have the abilities to do it he would think differently.  That is pretty abstract for someone who is eleven though.

We are going to work on making learning fun and loving to learn, because I do.  It never really occurred to me that some people don't.

Prayers for learning and changed attitudes...mine and Younger Boy's.
